Something is wrong with Perl I guess, and when trying to install some Perl module via CPAN or trying to upgrade CPAN we'll get this error:

cpan> install CPAN::Bundle
Fetching with LWP:
  ftp://ftp.port80.se/pub/CPAN/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz
LWP failed with code[500] message[Errno architecture (i386-linux-thread-multi-2.6.9-67.0.7.elsmp) does not match executable architecture (i386-linux-thread-multi-2.6.9-78.0.1.elsmp) at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/Errno.pm line 11.

]
Fetching with Net::FTP:
  ftp://ftp.port80.se/pub/CPAN/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz
Can't locate object method "new" via package "Net::FTP" at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/CPAN.pm line 2250.

I have Google on this very much, but not getting any solution. I also found some bug report from Redhat, but that not help me either.

Why this is happening is because that spamd has stopped running on this server, and when trying to run spamd we just get this results:
# spamd
Can't locate object method "register_domain" via package "IO::Socket::INET" at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/IO/Socket/INET.pm line 22.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/bin/spamd line 44.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/spamd line 79.

Any help is really appreciated.
